    So this little guy was whipped up to let the random people that show up at my house without calling, that I don't like them coming to visit! I hope they get the message! (I was as nice as I could be!)

    Made with one fat quarter and some leftover batting from a previous project, and an iron on fabric swatch that I use for labels. Took me about half an hour to whip him up! :-)

    :-) What do you think?

    I sincerely hope so! The next step is a shotgun and a security guard named "knuckles"

    ROFL That one is good too! And yeah, I know the people showing up unannounced won't know this is referring to them., I've got to give them fair warning before I bring out the shotgun, or the court won't let me go (again)

    teehee

    ROFL here, too!!! Hospitality "ain't" what it's cracked up to be any more, is it?
    I am also fond of " Unattended children will be given a Hershey bar and a FREE frog once we escort them to your car".
    Lots of folks have worn out their welcome at my place, too.

    I should worry... I live so far out in the sticks that nobody comes here except the census takers..

    We have a relative in another state who will call... when he's about 15 minutes from our house! He gives us that much notice that he's coming, or just shows up. Last time he stayed a week! Acted like we had nothing better to do than entertain him... We love him but what a pest.

    Go ahead and copy away my friends! I just have random people showing up at my house with no notice anymore that I'm about to commit a felony just to get rid of them. So up goes the sign!

    I finally but restrictions on: They're welcome to visit for half a day. After that I get on with my life.

    I have a sign that sais "please ring doorbell my dog needs the excersize. That has not worked yet. Maybe if I copy yours and put it with it it would work. Oh you know how people are they just read stuff like that and ask you to make them one.
    Ha. And its usually them the sign was ment for. :mrgreen:

    I don't care about drop in family/friends...love it. I do take issue with sales people ringing doorbell. I printed out a little card and hung by the bell that says something about "When you entered the subdivision you saw a no solicitor sign. Please respect that and do not disturb us."

    I love it! We just moved into a "fixer upper" (I have the most awesome sewing room now) But the ones who just recently moved (with the help of the local Sheriff's office)have a lot of "friends stopping by" There are sometimes up to 5 or 6 a day~ One girl actually asked me if I was planning to do any "selling" Sheesh...

    It is a really good neighborhood, and the neighbors are sure glad the previous tenants are gone! My sign should say something like "New tenants~ Only drugs you can get around here are at the Pharmacy!!!!
